Ooh...This is nice, buuuuuuut...do you plan on releasing this manga of yours in Japan?
Not really, the team just wants it like that, I'm using a more western mindset when it comes to this project what with the story being a Space opera and all, it's the direction the team is taking so I'd like to explore it abit.
If so, expect to wait until Comiket or some other manga conventions there. They're a great way to get noticed (and your ass kicked by the copyright police if you're not careful); not that I have ever been to one, but you get my point. I would like to see this mock-up in English as well if you would be so kind.
Me and the whole team have been over the potential for being stopped by the copyright police, as such we've been very careful not to invalidate other copyrights, this means original Gundam designs, an original universe, and nothing iconic such as haro or the newtype or X-rounder idea.
Technically its not even a gundam series at this point but some of the team are adamant about keeping the name, mainly because its what the series spawned out of, we're all fans of gundam and this whole project came out of the idea for making a homage to gundam, in essence we created the first ever fan-made western gundam series and I guess we can be proud of that.
